I'm not sure if this topic has already been discussed (I've been out of the loop since last Thursday) but if any of you guys can, I DEFINITELY recommend going to the Baaseball as America exhibit at the Field Museum. I was there yesterday (I think it opened Saturday) and was is awe from the moment I stepped in. I still get goosebumps thinking about it. There's nothing like seeing some momentos from Shoeless Joe, Buck Weaver, and Fisk, among other baseball greats. I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to going out to Cooperstown, but this is the next best thing by far.

P.S. One funny thing I saw - a Cubs Monopoly in the gift shop. Unfortunately, there wasn't a Sox version, but I got a laugh, imagining that the "Go to Jail" might possibly be "Go Play for the Cubs!" Ha Ha Ha
